U.S. defender Oguchi Onyewu will wear the green and white of Sporting Clube de Portugal beginning next season after joining the club on a free transfer.
Gooch signed a three-year contract and will compete in the Europa League next season with Sporting, which is part of the Três Grandes (Big Three) of Portuguese football along with Benfica and Porto.
"This is a club with a great history and ambition. I want to help Sporting be champion," he said at his official unveiling. "My time at Milan had ups and downs. I want to rebuild my career and Sporting are the perfect place for that."
Onyewu spent the last six months on loan at FC Twente, winning the Dutch FA Cup and finishing in second place in the Eredivisie behind Ajax.
